Yes, this is exactly what I was designing for. I'm a component/tool  
developer are heart, my mind sees the world as a bunch of lego pieces  
that will fit together if assembled with the right interfaces. ;-)

The ASBlockWalker has some serious refactor ahead, but I want to get  
as many unit tests in before I go ripping it a part and making  
abstract super classes with expression and statement hooks.
